Thumb Honda elite150 is cool

in so many scooters, Elite 150 86 is the very few can last over 20 years and still in style, she certainly stand out of the sea coast and show her beauty, Elite 150 the best~~!!

my Elite 150, we name her Freeway150 in Taiwan.

Very nice - the little old Yamahas look like a hoot.

I just picked up a '78ish Champ, but it's missing the engine. It's the style with the stamped steel body, kinda looks like a CT70. One of these years, I'll probably put a Chonda/Lifan four stroke in it.

Chappy's were fun little bikes. I an auto, ran great, bought it at a garage sale for 375 bucks. My daughter was five at the time, and the seat was great for toting her around. She would sit in front of me, and sometimes, I would let her steer and use the throttle.

I have modded a PW80 fatty pipe to fit. I cut the flange of the FMF and slide the chappy threaded collar on to the downpipe. I then made a new round flange to fit against the Chappy exhaust port and welded on. I then welded an extension pipe on the end and used a Viper scooter end can. The expansion parts runs along the frame like it was made for the job. It is much lighter than the factory system and you can decoke easily. The Chappy now revs harder and sounds much nicer. It climbs hills much better as well. Top speed is now nearly 50 mph ! I have upjetted the carb to a 105 jet but it still needs a bit of fine tuning.
Next job is to make 10" lambretta rims fit the hubs so I can fit trail tyres ( Sava MC17's )
